Made by Me Monday – Cozy-Up Your Infinity Scarf

2014 March 3

I’m calling it – I’m officially BACK and not sick at all! Even if I’m not, maybe acting like it will force the last tiny germs to take flight? (I think I can hear their little voices yelling as they run away right now. Yep – that’s them… I think… )

I figured an easy something cozy was finally in the works this morning and I got to finish up my plans for my lovely infinity scarf from last year. Turns out I could make it, but I couldn’t make it comfortable, or “not wrinkly” or easily look good. All three things being important parts of my usual wardrobe – though I do tend to hold lightly to the wrinkly bit. The scarf just frustrated me until I saw something at one of my local stores that I figured might help.

Someone had the brilliant idea to attach a light linen-weight scarf to the side of a chunky knit scarf. Two-for-One. Perfection! You CAN have cozy and a pretty print at the same time. So I folded up my lovely piece of Liberty and un-stashed my perfect shade of light coral-ly pink knit and then they sat… for months… until today. It was finally the perfect project to do when feeling slightly under the weather. Lots of pins and a couple of straight lines of sewing can’t be messed up easily, and thankfully for me it went well. I decided to encase the pre-hemmed Liberty fabric edges with the knit, sort of like self-binding a quilt.

Now the whole thing is even more super-soft and has a bit more weight, so it lays better when I put it on. It is also a perfect weight for a warmer winter day, and I can imagine it being a perfect early-spring jacket scarf. I might even take it into the Fall knowing me, colour knows no season over here. White belts year-round for everyone! (Within reason of course!)

Anyone else feel like they go through winter hiding in scarves and trying to forget that it’s -15 degrees (Celcius) outside? I’m not a winter person and was definitely super glad to go inside after the photos!

    Lovely scarf…very much liking the addition of the fabric. Pretty! Got this nasty cold bug myself. Nose feels as raw as my throat lol. Not much energy or endurance but getting better day by day. Hoping you get rid of your buggy remnants soon…great to see you back!

    Nice scarf! Looks very cosy. I can’t beleve its still deep winter on your side of the Atlantic Ocean. Here it’s nearly Spring as they are expecting about 15 degrees (Celcius) this weekend! I hope I don’t need my scarf any longer. Let this long Authumn become Spring, and forget Winter this year ;) .

    I’m trying to forget the -44 with windchill we had the other day. I love Liberty prints. I’m beating myself up that I didn’t pop into their store while I was in London in August. There just wasn’t enough time :(

      Oof…. -44?! Oh to be in London, too bad you couldn’t make it. It’s so hard when you only have a certain amount of time!
